Comments: One tricky 10d slab section, otherwise pretty straight forward, well bolted!

Comments: Awkward and hard start leads into perfect dihedral climbing with a healthy run-out. I put in the largest DMM brass-offset and took it 30 feet or so to safety with a few useless micro-nuts in-between. I thought the rock quality was pretty good, crumbly down low but I stuck to climbing in the crack into the dihedral directly.
Long but easy hike, easier than Queen Mountain.
Kudos to Simon for the tag-team ascent!

Comments: I had some trouble at the roof, up and down, but once I saw how to do it went down nicely. It all protects pretty well, one #4 useful for the layback finish.

Comments: P2 has a short but definitely solid 10a section. Continuing after the dihedral go slightly right then back left to the lunch ledge pine-tree for a full pitch. Rap from there or finish on one of the many variations to the top.

Comments: Done in two pitches, very awkward in the dihedral, I was under-cling fist-jamming, whatever that is.

Comments: Did the crux over the bush, got to the slab and saw the rusty 1/4in bolt, no thanks. Contrived to go up the slab anyway.

Comments: I skipped the first pitches, just scrambled to The Jungle, didn't seem to be any rave reviews for the first two pitches. The $ pitch seemed pretty easy and short for 10a.

Comments: Would say going this way was 5.5 while staying in the dihedral appeared (and I've heard) to be 5.8-ish.

Comments: Forget just linking 1+2, with a few feet of simul-climbing and a 70m you can link all the way to lunch ledge.

Comments: This is one of the best in Idyllwild! Topo is a bit outdated in the vogel book, no pin on p2, new bolt.

SPOILER ALERT!

Traverse directly right at the final bolt on p2, hands on two small black knobs, then breathe for a heady 5.6 runout, no pro after that bolt.

Comments: Of course JJ, I'm open to all interpretations as long as there's a line of reasoning behind it. Unfortunately lots of folks don't know why they believe what they believe.

Live as you will, argue for fun, climb forever.

Comments: I understand prying may be a "fact of life" but where is the line drawn? My personal rule, stated elsewhere on this intellectual pit of a website is that if you can't take it off by hand, then leave it alone.

Comments: This route is very "meh". Yea, good 5.7...for about 20ft and that's it. It's really just an alternative finish to the Trough.
